News: DJ Battle of the Mayors for Coronavirus


English mayors of Liverpool and Manchester go head to head in a DJ Battle for Coronavirus fundraiser to prove which city has the best music. 

Andy Burnham (mayor of Manchester) said: “Competition aside, music unites both city regions and the show promises to be an amazing celebration.

“We hope it will bring people together at a difficult time and raise funds for important causes at both ends of the M62.”

Mr Rotherham said: “Let’s face it, I could have chosen only 10 Beatles tracks and blown anything they have to offer out the water.

“But there will be just one Beatles track and lots of other great music. Let battle commence.”

The DJ battle will be aired on the United We Stream website next week with fundraising efforts focusing on rebuilding the region’s night-time economy through organisations affected by the coronavirus shutdown.
